Manic Street Preachers return with their 14th studio album The Ultra Vivid Lament on 3rd September 2021 released on Columbia/Sony and have announced a tour for this autumn. Orwellian, the first track to be released is classic Manic Street Preachers, dissecting the misuse of words against the cascading, glacial melody.
Following Manic Street Preachers longest enforced break from playing live, the group will take the album on a 14 date cross-country tour. Prior to these dates, they play some previously announced festival shows.
Support on all headline shows comes from The Anchoress.
